Most people around the world make use of public Wi-Fi hotspots, as their daily routine companion in communication. The access points (APs) of public Wi-Fi are easily deployed by anyone and everywhere, to provide hassle-free Internet connectivity. The availability of Wi-Fi increases the danger of adversaries, taking advantages of sniffing the sensitive data. One of the most serious security issues encountered by Wi-Fi users, is the presence of rogue access points (RAP). Several studies have been published regarding how to identify the RAP. Using systematic literature review, this research aims to explore the various methods on how to distinguish the AP, as a rogue or legitimate, based on the hardware and software approach model. In conclusion, all the classifications were summarized, and produced an alternative solution using beacon frame manipulation technique. Therefore, further research is needed to identify the RAP.
